First XIPE Science Meeting

The first science conference on the  XIPE mission will be in Valencia, Spain (24-26 May 2016)
All information about the first XIPE science meeting are available HERE.


The FLuorescence EXplorer (FLEX) mission proposes a satellite for the global monitoring of steady-state chlorophyll fluorescence in terrestrial vegetation.


UFFO stands for Ultra Fast Flash Observatory and it is a dedicated mission to study the early stages of Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs). The GACE  has developed  UBAT, the X-ray trigger detector for UFFO.

Observations of Magnetic Elements in the Quiet Sun Internetwork

We present here the analysis of high-resolution images of the quiet Sun at disk center taken with the Solar Optical Telescope (SOT) on board Hinode in the CN bandhead (388.35 nm) and magnetograms in the Mg I line (517.27 nm). These observations are complemented with data from the Swedish 1m Solar Telescope (SST). All data sets were obtained during the Hinode/Canary Islands joint campaign (HOP 0014) in September, 2007. In particular, we investigate the morphology, radiative and magnetic properties of small-scale elements in the solar atmosphere.

Evidence of small-scale magnetic concentrations dragged by vortex motion of solar photospheric plasma

Vortex-type motions have been measured by tracking bright points in high-resolution observations of the solar photosphere. These small-scale motions are thought to be determinant in the evolution of magnetic footpoints and their interaction with plasma and therefore likely to play a role in heating the upper solar atmosphere by twisting magnetic flux tubes. We report the observation of magnetic concentrations being dragged towards the center of a convective vortex motion in the solar photosphere from high-resolution ground-based and space-borne data.

Sunrise: instrument, mission, data and first results

The Sunrise balloon-borne solar observatory consists of a 1m aperture Gregory telescope, a UV filter imager, an imaging vector polarimeter, an image stabilization system and further infrastructure. The first science flight of Sunrise yielded high-quality data that reveal the structure, dynamics and evolution of solar convection, oscillations and magnetic fields at a resolution of around 100 km in the quiet Sun. After a brief description of instruments and data, first qualitative results are presented. In contrast to earlier observations, we clearly see granulation at 214 nm.
